From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Chad Everett (born June 11, 1936 in South Bend, Indiana, United States) is an American actor who has appeared in over 40 films and television series but is probably best known for his role as Dr. Joe Gannon in the 1970s television drama Medical Center.

Born Raymond Lee Cramton, Everett became interested in the theatre as a Fordson High School student in Michigan. After attending Wayne State University, he headed to Hollywood and signed a contract with Warner Brothers studio.

His first notable role came in an episode of the 1960s detective series Surfside 6. His first major role came a year later in the film Claudelle Inglish. After appearing in a number of movies and televisions series in the later 1960s, he landed the role of Dr. Joe Gannon on the innovative medical drama Medical Center in 1969.

Since then he has appeared in numerous films and television series including Centennial, Hagen, Airplane II: The Sequel, Star Command, and Mulholland Dr. He has also appeared as a guest star on over 40 televisions series such as Melrose Place, The Nanny, Touched by an Angel, Diagnosis Murder, Caroline in the City, Murder, She Wrote, The Red Skelton Show, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and Route 66.

Everett battled alcohol addiction for many years before seeking treatment from Alcoholics Anonymous. A Republican, he had a much publicized argument with noted feminist Lily Tomlin during the filming of the March 31, 1972 episode of the Dick Cavett Show. Tomlin became so enraged at Everett she stormed off the set and refused to return.

He hosts TBN's "Master's Theater."
